An air conditioning option you may not have considered, or even heard of, is a mini-split system. Mini-split systems have been prominent in Europe and Asia for quite some time and are becoming continuously popular in the United States. Comparable to a forced central air conditioner they have an outdoor and indoor unit, and occasionally with multiple indoor units.
With the mini-split model of air conditioning you are easily able to establish individual zones in your home, with each zone having its own thermostat. This allows you to only cool the areas of your home that are in use. Many models are able to have four single zones linked to one outdoor unit. The number of zones will change subject to how much cooling is required and how well the room is insulated.
Mini-split systems are a successful fix to both your air conditioning and heating needs because they are compact, not noisy and help you build a more relaxed home environment. Not to mention, the economical levels of mini-split systems mean that you’re able to have better control of your home’s comfort while also being respectful of your monthly energy costs.
Mini-splits are great options for new home additions such as sun rooms. They make less noise than a window unit because, just like a central air conditioner system, the condensing unit is outdoors. They also have sleek, modern designs and don’t block out light from windows like a window unit. There are many diverse installation options as well, including the ability to have the indoor unit put in a ceiling.
Your air conditioning really comes down to what is the best fit for you and your home. If you’d like to discuss if a mini-split system will work for you give our professionals a call at 219-872-2198.
